According to the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) Substantive Rules § 25.497(a) a "critical load public safety customer" is defined as "loads for which electric service is considered crucial for the protection or maintenance of public safety; including but not limited to hospitals, police stations, fire stations, critical water and wastewater facilities, and customers with special in-house life-sustaining equipment." A "critical load industrial customer" is defined as "an industrial customer for whom an interruption or suspension of electric service will create a dangerous or life-threatening condition on the retail customer's premises.”
Retail Customers designated as a Critical Load Industrial Customer are not guaranteed uninterrupted electric power supply. If electricity is a necessity, it is the responsibility of the Retail Customer to make arrangements for alternate sources of electric power.
